Anybody have this happen to their snowblower

We had a small snow event last Thursday, about 5 inches of windswept powder variety in the western New York area. It was mostly a lake effect snowfall with 40 mph winds which made visibility tough. Anyway, as I was driving home from work wondering what I will have to deal with in my driveway - I was pleasantly surprised that my wife had fired up the Toro CCR 3650 had almost completed the whole driveway when it just stopped working. My neighbor stopped over and put some gas in it but it would not start. I did see fuel in the backyard on some snow covered part of the driveway. I just put it away and fired up the backup and was done in no time. Upon returning to my toro today I was thinking maybe a fuel line was bad or carb was leaking - I put the Toro in the service position and noticed I had a problem with the fuel filter.
See photo. Anyone have this freakish problem? Easy and inexpensive fix, but strange to me.

I have never seen that happen.

One thing I have learned is that living richly is less about the net worth on your bank statement and more about the value of the lessons you offer those who want to learn from you.

Wow that is odd. I have had alot of toro ccr blowers come through my garage and never seen that.

I thought they were one piece I didnt know they could split in half.

I rehabbed and flipped a CCR3650 last season after fixing its electric starter and I replaced the fuel filter as preventative maintenance even though the old one looked OK. Your picture is a reminder that it was probably a good idea.

What is a "snow event"? Is it anything like you got snow?
No I've never even heard of that before, probably welded together by sound waves and failed.

Weatherman terminology for snow storm.

Garage
When you think about it makes perfect sense. The two halves are likely identical, the filter material is placed in the middle and they are sonically or glue joined. Never seen one come apart before but there's always a first time.
Sorry it did so on your wife.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I have seen that happen although it is very rare being a fuel system component.
A few years ago a company that sold that style/design had to recall a batch of them because of that problem, splitting in half like that, they realized they had a bad batch of them from the manufacturer of them, made in Asia.
It is a serious fire hazard when they break or split apart like that, plus a toxic "cleanup/spill" when it happens and the EPA finds out.

I agree, the first thing I thought about when I saw the fuel in and on the snow was my dog. I immediately shoveled that area right down to the pavement then got some fresh snow and covered that area.
